Fact mix 234 - Pangaea

I needn't say anything other than this is a mix from Pangaea, its just short of 80 minutes in length and contains 32 badass tracks from the likes of Blawan, Sicko cell, Addison Groove, Coki, FaltyDl and the man himself.  You wont be disappointed.

FaltyDL - Lucky Luciano

Drew lustman (aka FaltyDL) has just released his 2nd full length album "You stand uncertain" on the Planet Mu label. The strongest track in my opinion has to be "Lucky Luciano" an intense drum heavy workout coupled with hazy synth chords and vocal samples. The influences of jungle, garage and 90's rave are apparent here as with most of his work, yet he still manages to create something new and fresh with every track which is probably why i have had this on repeat since i bought it.

I recently discovered this guy via Rob Flynn's 'Noise mix Volume one' (Link below) and instantly fell in love with the track "Clap your hands part one".  His style lies somewhere beween dubstep and future garage, littered with ethereal synth pads and vinyl hiss reminiscent of Mount Kimbie or Airhead but with more of a club friendly vibe, and the beats are tight which doesn't hurt either.

Please show some love by checking his soundcloud page (especially the 2011 demos)  



This is the future

Nihon Kizuna

"Worldwide artists contribute to Nihon Kizuna music compilation in aid of Japan disaster relief effort. Over 40 international artists have donated music for the Nihon Kizuna compilation in aid of the Japan disaster relief effort. Nihon Kizuna, or 日本絆 in Japanese roughly translates as ‘bond of friendship with Japan’. Following the earthquake and tsunami which devastated the northern coast and prefectures of Japan on Friday March 11th 2011, a small group of Tokyo-based artists (from Japan, Ukraine and France) and one visiting London-based journalist (from Italy) decided to pull their efforts and contacts together to do the only thing they could to help the country and its people – sell music to raise awareness of the devastation that hit the area and raise money for its people and the relief effort."

With 50 tracks (most of which are exclusive to this compilation) from the likes of Kode9, Samiyam, Emika, Onra, Slugabed and Illumsphere, this is pretty much a no brainer. Not only can you contribute to the much needed relief effort in Japan but also receive a reward for your generosity (aswell as good Karma!)
